Shulmans has given permanent positions to four recently qualified solicitors and taken on a new associate solicitor.

The firm has expanded its commercial team with the appointment of Helen Goldthorpe as an associate solicitor. With experience in commercial and IT contracting, Goldthorpe has specialist knowledge of data protection compliance, software development and exploitation, complex contractual joint ventures and outsourcing arrangements.

The four Shulman trainees who have recently qualified and secured permanent positions are Ryan Adams, Sarah Briscall, Emma Wardle and Oliver Whelligan-Fell.

Adams is a specialist in sports law, while Briscall joins the commercial team. Wardle will continue to support the residential development team and Whelligan-Fell boosts the rapidly-growing corporate offering.

Shulmans has also welcomed Joe Gosling and Eleanor Russell-Smith, who join the firm as trainee solicitors. Their first seats are in property support and residential development respectively.

Chris Peace, partner and training principal said: “We are very proud of the training programme at Shulmans. We are committed to providing the very best training so that we can continue to develop truly excellent legal minds and ultimately, ensure that we have a successful and highly-skilled Shulmans team.”

Managing partner of Shulmans, Tim Halstead, added: “We are delighted to celebrate the hard work of our newly qualified solicitors and welcome our new recruits. Our commitment to providing consistently excellent service to our clients is dependent upon having the best people. This will further strengthen Shulmans at an exciting time in our development.”
